Doggy Slippers – Jorge Luján

Doggy Slippers
Jorge Luján (with the contribution of Latin American children)

Doggy Slippers is filled with sweet poems about children and their pets. Luján offered children in Latin America the opportunity to write him about their pets, and the pets they wanted. The letters were then molded into these wonderful poems. The poems are simply written but expressive. In one poem, Littlekins has grown so large that he neither fits in the child’s doggy slippers, nor does he fit his name. The very simplicity of the poems promises to make them accessible to children of all ages and a delight to adult readers.

Rating: ★★★★☆
